A Love Story

Paradise Road Galleries

The paintings presented before you is named ‘The Tune of Romance’ . It is directly inspired from the ancient Indian theory of pleasure and love making, and the romantic sentiment or “Shringar Ras”. The works are in a modern Sri Lankan mode of expression, interweaved with Sinhalese patterns and motives. The paintings display feelings of colour and shades from love in union, to love in separation. From delight of the senses to the dark night of the soul. To believe in th e light from romance as an enlightenment source is the aim of these works, to invite a light of mind where the boundaries of race and cast can are as thin as the veil of the lover awaiting her beloved.
